Secret Ingredient: Truffle Butter

Our Secret Ingredients series shines a light on products that make all the difference when cooking with D’Artagnan.

It is said that butter makes everything better. If it’s black truffle butter, that’s got to be correct. We spread it on bread with a slice of saucisson sec on top for a perfectly simple – and unexpectedly delicious – hors d’ouevre. Tucked under the skin of a chicken or turkey, the heavenly stuff melts and works all kinds of flavorful magic as the bird roasts. We even make a wagyu burger and slather the brioche bun with truffle butter.

Trust us, you’ll want to keep this stuff in the fridge – with backup in the freezer, where it can last forever.  You can melt it easily and drizzle on your popcorn. Or whip into mashed potatoes. Sometimes just a slice of bread with truffle butter on it is enough to put a smile on your face.

6 Brunch Ideas We Love

Brunch, a brilliant combination of breakfast and lunch, is often the most anticipated meal of the week. This best-of-both-worlds feast is perfect for those lazy weekend days when sleeping in is a must. Brunch is usually served between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and in terms of food, anything goes. While we like a leisurely lunch at a restaurant, there is something about making your own brunch at home, and maybe in pajamas. If you are of the same mind, here are six of our favorite recipes for a satisfying brunch at home.

1. Rich and creamy shirred eggs with bacon and chives are not only delicious but ridiculously easy to prepare. Perfect for brunch!

Stewing Essentials

Stewing is a versatile and economical method of one-pot cooking which creates delicious, stick-to-your-ribs dishes of tender meat and rich sauce. Similar to braising, a stew often consists of meats and vegetables slow-cooked in flavorful liquid over a low flame. The perfect antidote to winter’s chill, stew is deeply comforting and easy to make at home.

5 Braise-Worthy Recipes

With 15% off all the cuts fit to braise right now, let’s look at some classic recipes for braising, shall we?

1. Rabbit. This Irish recipe by the inimitable Colman Andrews has hard cider in the braising liquid. Which is also really nice for drinking while your rabbit simmers.

Praise the Braise with 15% Off!

With the winter chill there’s only one thing to do: get in the kitchen and braise! Now is the time for comfort foods like slow-cooked short ribs that fall of the bone. Simmering foreshanks of wild boar. Succulent osso buco … you get the idea.

Now through February 24 save 15% off all the cuts we like to braise, and few other items that might help in your braising efforts. Like bacon. A true braise begins with rendering some bacon fat into a pan – but you knew that. Because you’ve got to brown the meat in something, and it might as well be bacon fat.

Valentine’s Day at Home: Dessert

We are definitely known for the savory things in life.  Bacon? We’ll come running. But when there’s chocolate with bacon in it, we’re running even faster.  If you feel the same way, and want something a bit unconventional for your Valentine’s Day dessert, have a look at these recipes.

Bacon brittle is our go-to for holiday gifts. This sweet and savory combination is delightful to munch on any time, but you can serve it with vanilla ice cream for an unexpected twist on dessert.

Valentine’s Day at Home: The Apps

For many of us, cooking at home for (or with) someone we love is the ultimate way to spend Valentine’s Day. Why leave your cozy cocoon when all you need is right there? If you are a member of this romantic tribe, we have a few fun ideas for dinner à deux.

One way to make the evening special is to include luxurious ingredients. Caviar is the ultimate “special occasion” food, and it is reputed to be an aphrodisiac. Famed lover Casanova was known to enjoy it, and on the other end of the spectrum, Henry Kissinger said of it, “I’d do anything for caviar and probably did.” If you are sharing dinner with an avowed caviar fan, then by all means, pop open a tin.

Top 7 Favorites for Game Day Grub

Football fans who also happen to be foodies know that the Super Bowl is a chance to eat well and to show off their kitchen skills to a whole party at the big game.

First off, we are offering 15% off a choice selection of items like ribs, sausages, ground beef (Wagyu included!) and various nibbles that require little prep. All will be welcome additions to your game-day lineup.

And when it comes to recipes, we’ve got you covered with some serious game day grub.

With a nod to New England, we love a good lobster roll. And with our hickory smoked bacon on top, these are the best. Plus they are fairly easy to eat on a couch in a crowded room.

Speaking of bacon, bring your “A” game to the chips and dip with this utterly addictive wild mushroom and bacon creamy dip. Use the best, solidly-built potato chips you can find to scoop up this heavenly stuff. Double the recipe for a big crowd.

Somebody had to say it: ribs make life complete. While these sweet-and-sticky ribs are just that, it’s worth all the wet-naps in the world to have these piled high for the party. Use our Berkshire pork baby back ribs for the recipe and know the taste of victory.

Looking for something less hands-on? Try a big pot of gumbo, made with our spicy andouille sausage. This will serve up easily; just stack some bowls and put out the spoons. Make it a day ahead for convenience.

For another one-pot meal that is sure to please, use buffalo meat in this wild take on classic chili. We like the simple things in life, done with a twist. Heirloom beans and buffalo (we adapted it to use ground meat) make this recipe an all-American dish.

And where there is chili, there should be cornbread. Watch the crumbs, fellows! Our recipe is enhanced with bacon. But of course it is.

Here’s another idea we love. Anyone can pull pork, but who is planning to pull duck leg confit? Here the real work is in making your own sauce (so worth a little effort!). The duck leg confit shreds up real easy, so making these sandwiches is a breeze.

Enjoy the Super Bowl! And just remember, the real game is in the kitchen. May the best team, er … cook, win
